Catalogue entry

The subject is continued on folio 40 recto opposite (D02529). The same hill and tower may be shown in the distance in the view on folios 40 verso–41 recto (D02530–D02531); however, see the entry for D02530 for further discussion. Finberg suggested that the river here is the Tweed.1
